Stuffed pork loin

I did this a few days ago, everybody said they liked it so here goes.

I took a nice center cut of pork loin about ten inches long. Trimmed it of all excess fat. Cut off two 1/2 inch thick chops from this and set aside. then, with a long slicing knife I cut the loin in a spiral fashion and rolled it out. I wish I would have taken a pic at this point but I forgot. After you have it sliced spirally flatten it with a tenderizer to about 1/2 inch thick. Next I applied a liberal coating of rub followed by a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic and minced chipotle peppers with adobo sauce. I applied this "wall to wall" The more chipotle and adobo the hotter it will be.Then a layer of fresh baby spinach followed by a layer of applewood smoked ham.

The next step is a layer of alpine swiss cheese followed by some smoked sharp cheddar cheese

Next I rolled it all up. Start with a short end like in from right to left.
Now cover the whole thing with bacon. 
Tie the roll in about four places with string. Take the two chops and place them on the ends and tie the roast horizontally to hold them in place.
I place these chops so the cheese doesn't ooze out while cooking.

Throw some more rub all over it
I cooked mine indirect with a drip pan at about 350 as measured by a Maverick right on the grate.
I took it off at 150 degrees and let it sit about twenty minutes. I used bourbon barrel bungs for smoke.
And this is what I ended up with

  • Excellent job! You have all kinds of flavors going on there. I did one last year with cornbread stuffing and cranberries which came out pretty good. Thanks for the post.

    Wow! Great looking cook. I've been sorta hesitant to add much more than a couple of things to the pork loin, but not after seeing this! Thanks!!

    I bought one of those honking great pork loins from Costco - about 3 feet long for a measly $19.38. I cut one end into a roast (egged last weekend) cut six thick chops from the other (in freezer for future use). Here's the center cut - with sage and onion stuffing, rolled, tied and put on the egg last night - 350 PS legs up, on the grate for 2 hours. Parsnip mashed taters, sautéed brussels sprouts and a cider beurre blanc to go with. Yummo!!image
